2005 Chardonnay, Sonoma Coast

Winemaker Notes

Our third release from this young vineyard planted by Richard Hyde and his son Rick, brother and nephew of Larry Hyde. Named Sonoma Stage, it is at the apex of Stage Gulch Road between Petaluma and Carneros—a quite cool and windy site. This vintage is its fourth harvest, from sixth-leaf vines, half Wente selection from Larry Hyde's vineyard and half Dijon clones.
